Israeli Ambassador to UN: Hamas keeps passing on opportunities to improve life for Gazans

Israeli military forces are searching for one of their own, 2nd Lieutenant Hadar Goldin. The IDF believes he was taken by Hamas after one of its militants blew himself up and killed two other Israeli soldiers.

Hamas says this story is an Israeli fiction, an excuse to engage militants just 90 minutes after a 72-hour cease-fire began.

CNN's Jake Tapper spoke to the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, who says Hamas is only making things worse for the Gazans caught in the crossfire.
